Modica, Sicily

Modica is a beautiful little city in the Mountains, not far from Ragusa, and known for its Sicilian Baroque and its Chocolate. Grotesque masks, Balconies, archways, staircases/steps in the narrow alleys and streets leading further up the city,

In the scorching heat a lot of gelati, afternoons with my nose in the Modica Choclate and in the evening it was waiting to get a seat at the over crowded restaurants and soooooo worth it… oh Sicilian food 🙂 although I have to admit that for two days I had “pizza chips” for dinner; “tomato, cheese, origano and…. french fries”… seriously… on top of the pizza and it was damn tasty!

Baroque is something I will start looking at for Inspiration, I can write hours about Baroque Architecture but I will spare you all :), I just feel its something worth fashion wise to dig a bit deeper into… again…

The dress is Marc by Marc Jacobs, and the heels Zara, I think they are super comfi, I climbed about 1000 stairs/steps up on them, on these old city pavements with no problems, the stairs and hills down was well… let’s just say I’m happy I didn’t rolled all the way down 🙂

    What an adorable little dress! I love all the ruffles. I need to find some cool places like this to take pictures. Wish I had the money to go to Sicily! But there’s some old cathedrals in my area. Thanks for the inspiration!

    So nice you’re in Sicily. My friends were there last week and they told me it was so hot there that you couldn’t wear anything except t-shirts and tops.
    Well, it’s quite hot also here, in the north part of Italy, in Romagna. So nice it’s sunny weather in the south, here’s coming bad weather from Germany-France.
    Have a nice holiday and EAT Cannoli! They’re really good and something of characteristic from Sicily, pizza comes from Napoli!
